Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, the Senate President, is said to have married a new wife in a highly private ceremony in Borno State.
According to SaharaReporters, the Senate President’s new bride is a young Shuwa Arab girl named Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid.
According to the story, the low-key wedding took place on Friday, June 25 at Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh’s mosque in Maiduguri.
The ceremony was apparently held behind closed doors to minimize public scrutiny, as Zainab is set to transfer to Abuja on Sunday. A small party was also hosted at the bride’s family’s home in Maiduguri’s Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street.
